*****  PJs Guitar Chords & Lyrics  -  http://www.guitarsongs.info  *****
Capo 2rd Fret  ( 3rd fret for original Band version )
D7      G
She stands on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
Alone in the pale moonlight
Waitin' for a man, a riverboat gambler,
Who said that he'd re-turn tonight
She used to walk on the banks of the mighty Mississippi
Hummin' the whole night thru'
Send the riverboat gambler off to make a killin'
And bring it on back to you.
  C            G          D7          		G     C    G
Evangeline, Evangeline, curses the soul of the Mississippi Queen
       D7           G
That stole her man away
Bayou Sam, from South Louisianna 
Had gamblin' in his veins
Evangeline, from the Maritime,
Was slowly goin' insane
High on the top of Hickory Hill
She stands in the lightning and thunder
Down on the river, the boat was a-sinkin'
She watched that Queen go under
